In what is a sad turn of events for fans of the Merc with a Mouth, it seems that FX is exiting Marvel’s planned Deadpool animated TV series. But the network is not the only group stepping away from the project as Donald Glover and Stephen Glover have also announced they will no longer be involved with the series. The duo was going to write the series, executive produce, and serve as showrunners but now the future of the project is up in the air.
According to a report from The Hollywood Reporter, FX has cited creative differences as the reason for the parties involved parting ways. The statement from FX reads as follows,
“Due to creative differences, FX, Donald Glover, Stephen Glover and Marvel Television have agreed to part ways on Marvel’s Deadpool animated series. “FX will no longer be involved with the project. FX and Marvel have an ongoing relationship through our partnership on Legion, which will continue.”
The series had been picked up straight to series in May for a 10 episode order and was set to come from Marvel Television, FX Productions, and ABC Signature. But after this announcement, it is unknown when or even if we will see the show. The most likely theory among fans is that the series may be put up on the soon to release Disney streaming service which will feature many Disney original programs.
